    Wow are these good! I made these as a light appetizer for Christmas Eve and they were a hit. They were super easy to prepare ahead of time and toss together as our guests arrived. I heated up the filo cups according to the package directions and set them aside very early in the day. Also, I think making the mushroom filing ahead of time was a good idea because after first prepared it was a bit 'loose' but tightened up after spending a few hours in the fridge. I put the filling in the cups and put them in a 300 degree oven for about 10 minutes, topped with chives and served. I couldn't find the exotic blend of mushrooms at my local grocery store so I used a few baby portabella's, shiitake's and rehydrated some Morel's I had on hand. This is definitely going to be go to appetizer for me and am already planning on taking it over to a friends house for a New Years Eve celebration. Enjoy!

    These came together easily once I got the ingredients. I did not have sherry in the house, so substituted white wine. I also could not find fresh sage so used dried. Served at a neighborhood party and received many compliments. Recipe made way too much filling for number of phyllo cups. I need to find another use for it.
